Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 11615

The Oasis of the Seas is a fantastic and jaw dropping ship with all its architecture and amazing ability to place so many environments on the ship.  However after traveling cruising on several other Royal Caribbean ships the Oasis exceeding expectations for its grandness, which also led to what I see as its need for improvements.  There were many activities and shows however with 5,000 to 6,500 people the venues for events for way to small to accommodate the people who wanted to participate.  Many of the shows were not available to most who wanted to see them even when trying to reserve a time slot.  Although the dining room service and food was outstanding the Wind Jammer food was mediocre at best.  After traveling on the Grandeur of the Seas the food expectation was set high (my greatest thanks to the Chefs) and the Oasis of the seas did not even come close.  Most times the food was cold and lacked flavor.  4 stars my be a little high but 3 what have been to low considering the other great services provided on board.

Ship Tip

Need to coordinate activities so that more people can attend events. ie. the Karoke was a hit however most days it was standing room or people turned away because of space. You other facilites onboard to have this activity that could have been used. Other examples not enough space to write.
